Let me start off saying that I am not the type of person who leaves bad reviews. Typically if I dislike a minor thing here and there I just let it slide and move on without writing any reviews. However, I would be doing a disservice to fellow travelers if I don't share my review on this one. I've been... More

Hidden gem. If you love coffee get yourself in here and meet one of the nicest guys in the business Brian Birdy. Excellent service and atmosphere and beautiful roasted coffee by Brian himself. Had a super espresso and a great chat about coffee.

I tried several hostels in Dublin but this one was definitely the best : everything is clean, there was a bathroom in the room, the beds are comfy (there are curtains, plugs, lamps), the breakfast is great, the kitchen big enough for everyone, the wifi works well, there are many couches on the ground floor to relax, and the staff...

Best hostel I've ever stayed at. Everything is done right here: - spacious dorm rooms - abundance of outlets (including 2 at your bed) - large, comfortable common area - clean and roomy bathrooms, both en suite and shared - strong wifi throughout the building The only minor downside is that it's a little bit far from city center, but...

The hostel was clean and the beds were great. You had a curtain which closed the length of your bed, 2 USB sockets and 2 plug sockets and a light in a panel above your head which was really handy. The areas to chill out in were great. Plenty of room and really spacious. Also, not a far walk to... More

The staff was very helpful. The mattresses aren't amazing but the comforters on the beds are glorious. The pub crawl hosted by the hostel was a lot of fun. Room and bathrooms were clean. The lockers for luggage are under the beds, which is convenient.

Very clean and well-maintained. Very friendly and helpful staff. The hostel is very close to a lot of attractions, restaurants, and pubs. It's the perfect environment for students and people in their 20's.

Great hostel, clean, safe and comfortable fantastic value for money and fairly close to the centre. Staff where helpful and plentiful and other guests friendly. Negatives...ask for a second pillow as you get supplied with one very small one, and secondly the mini bus company they recommend for transfers is fairly expensive and drivers drive like lunatics.

I've really enjoyed my stay at this hostel. It's very clean, staff are friendly, good security, not noisy (which is good for a hostel) comfy beds and a decent free breakfast. We enjoyed the boiled eggs and fresh toast. It's also located close to O'Connell street and Connelly station.

It's actually not a Hostel for younger people. It's like a Hostel,and the people there like to be alone. So when you like to have a Hostel experience,I wouldn't recommend it.The Staff is really nice and friendly,they'll help you by all you wanna know. Breakfast was acceptable, and the location is good.
